I am trying to clip a county DEM file using the PLSS Section shape files as mask layers... that is, I want it clipped to sections so that I can load my DEM into QGIS one section at a time, without having to load the whole 4GB raster for any little project I want to work on.
I have tried to do this by going to Raster > Extraction > Clipper ... however it returns an error:
ERROR 6: No translation for Lambert_Conformal_Conic to PROJ.4 format is known. ERROR 6: No translation for Lambert_Conformal_Conic to PROJ.4 format is known.
I have found a way to rasterize the shape files and use the raster calculator, however this is more of a pain and I want to understand why this is not working for me.
I assume it has something to do with the fact that I'm using a custom CRS for my county? CRS databases don't recognize it.
+proj=lcc +lat_1=43.57503293972223 +lat_0=43.57503293972223 +lon_0=-90.78333333333333 +k_0=1.0000408158 +x_0=222504.44500889 +y_0=47532.0603505207 +ellps=GRS80 +towgs84=0,0,0,0,0,0,0 +units=us-ft +no_defs
Running QGIS 2.0.1 on Macbook Air using Mavericks 10.9
I ran gdalsrsinfo on the raster file and the command line returned the same error, plus the WKT:
